Abstract

We shall first point out that education across borders - even distance education across borders - is not a new development. However, there are new trends within this activity that we must explore. We shall focus particularly on three of them: the use of eLearning to strengthen higher education generally; the creation of open educational resources; and the challenges of quality assurance and standards, including the problem of degree mills. As we examine these trends we shall ask, in the spirit of your conference theme, if they create new missions for open and distance education.
